Trenchers by MattNB Trenchers by MattNB
Some Fluff:

Once a peaceful and prosperous nation, under the tyrannical de-facto rule of the Divine Regent the Theocratic Kingdom of Pyritia has taken a turn for the worse. Decades of oppressive rule and isolation have left the population fearful and aggressive. Headed by a decadent upper-class who rule over their estates with an iron fist, the Kingdom is now a shadow of its former self.

Acting as an interpreter to the will of the dead King (who has in death been elevated to the status of a god), the Divine Regent has lead Pyritia down a road of rapid industrialisation and violent land-grabs.

Pyritia’s considerable military consists mostly of levied, rifle-armed peasants (Inwoners) but also has a small but effective core of assault troopers (Anwanders) armed with automatic weapons and transported in motorized trucks.

These guys are Inwoners, which comes from the Dutch word for Dweller. I plan to do some more painting based in this fantasy universe as these guys were lots of fun.

Poor guys, forced to fight. :( At least their armor looks like it can protect them.

These are cool.
I very much like the grittyness of the uniforms.
